Event description

Description

The annual FALCON conference is the premiere event for 1994 (Tribal Colleges & Universities) land-grant administrators, extension directors, faculty, researchers and students. The conference provides training, professional development and networking opportunities among the 1994s and with their strategic partners, including USDA NIFA, other federal agencies, the 1862 and 1890 land grants, and the nonprofit sector. As always, there is a strong focus on student presentation and career development.

This year's conference will be held at the Radisson Blu in downtown Minneapolis. The conference will start with a pre-conference workshop on Friday, November 2, 2018, and will conclude on Monday, November 5, 2018.

We are excited to announce a pre-conference workshop on Friday afternoon, November 2, 2018. Participation in a pre-conference workshop requires a $50 fee for each workshop paid in advance to cover transportation and logistical costs. The workshop being offered is:

1. Exploring Traditional Foods: Wild rice harvesting, processing and cooking: Participants will explore how youth, health & wellness, and food systems programming can be designed with a cultural and local/regional focus, using wild rice as anexample. Participants will learn about the cultural context and process of harvesting, preparing and cooking wild rice. Demonstrations and hands-on learning will take place in a state-of-the-art studio kitchen (see the website for more info on the venue: http://thelynhall.com/kitchen-studio/). The workshop will take place 1:00-5:30pm on Friday, November 2, 2018. Attendance is limited to 40. Remember that a $50 ticket (separate from conference registration) is required. We expect the workshop to fill up quickly, so make your plans soon! Time: 12:00 p.m. to 5:00 p.m.

Please note that you must pay for an extra $50 "ticket" for any pre-conference workshops. The price for pre-conference workshops is NOT included in your conference registration (full, 2-day or 1-day.)
